Uses of the subjunctive in Italian and French in a corpus of comics and graphic novels. We propose the study of the uses of the subjunctive in Italian and French and the alternative solutions in each of the two languages on the basis of a corpus of 18 comics and graphic novels (9 originals and their translation) published from 1997 to 2017. 49.7% of the 227 items obtained correspond to the use of the subjunctive in Italian and alternative solutions in French; 29% to the use of the subjunctive in both languages; 21% to the use of the subjunctive in French and alternative solutions in Italian. We describe the profile of the uses, the syntactic context and the type of semantics involved. Our objective is to determine the systemic coherence of these uses and to produce an inventory of the use of the subjunctive in the French and Italian neo-standards, as close as possible to the current use of the two languages, for the first two decades of the 21st century.

Keywords: subjunctive, French, Italian, comics
